I haven’t posted a weekly gratitude list in quite a while (I think it’s been about a month?!), and I feel kind of bad about it; some awesome things have happened over the past month, but I was a bit down, and not really in the frame of mind to post regularly (seriously Black Dog sucks, but to be honest, it’s probably when I need to post a gratitude list the most).
Anyway, I have decided I need to suck it up and start posting regular gratitude lists again, because I’m far more happy when I write them, and it’s much better to focus on the good things happening in life than wallowing/focusing on the negative. So in the spirit of reminding myself how awesome life can be, here’s what I’m currently grateful for…
Rocking bare legs in my hometown. This year’s all about doing more things that scare me, and this was a biggie. I am so self conscious about how I look, but this year, it’s all about being confident in my own skin, and wearing what I want to wear.
Catching up with friends and family.
My birthday weekend away; we went to Rotorua and I went on an alpaca farm tour, which was awesome (I blogged about it here).
Having my husband as a road trip buddy. Feelings are gross, I know, but I can’t see myself road-tripping across the country with anyone else.
Finding a café where the entire menu has a gluten free option (Solace in Rotorua is AMAZING; I was in food heaven).
Pho lunch dates with my sister.
The macaron at Louis Sergeant (they are to die for; so effing good).
Being on leave; I have had such an awesome time off work, and I start back tomorrow… Nooooo!
Phillip for making me the most amazing birthday cake (it was vegan too!)
Phillip’s gastroscopy was okay. Well this is kind of a sword, because it means nothing is obviously wrong, but we’re also no closer to a diagnosis*.
*For those who don’t know, my husband has what looks like an undiagnosed autoimmune condition, he had a gastroscopy this week which didn’t show anything obvious (which is good and bad). He has been in chronic pain for about 9 months and has seen numerous specialists, but as of yet, there has not been a diagnosis. He blogged about living in chronic pain at the beginning of the year, if you would like to check it out.
Anyway, that’s it from me for this week; I hope your week is going well, and if it isn’t remember that there is always something to be grateful for; even if it’s small (I’m not trying to be preachy by the way, I just feel that is a good reminder for everyone; especially myself). XX
